Desert Encounters, Aaron Raverty OSB 2012 College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University

Desert Encounters, Aaron Raverty Osb

Aaron Raverty

What does the hermit life mean to a Benedictine monk used to living in community? This article makes the case that the hidden riches of living as an anchorite in the desert can deepen one’s commitment to living with others, as well as expand one’s interreligious horizons. Such are my reflections from a recent sabbatical stay in the high-desert region of south-central Colorado.

Moral Revision In Latin Ethnography: A Reassessment Of Tacitus’ Germania And Caesar’S Bellum Gallicum, Joseph D. Davis 2012 The University of Western Ontario

Moral Revision In Latin Ethnography: A Reassessment Of Tacitus’ Germania And Caesar’S Bellum Gallicum, Joseph D. Davis

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

ABSTRACT

The preponderance of interest in the Roman frontier and its peripheral non-Roman cultures has manifested itself in all aspects of the discipline of Classical Studies: from material archaeology to the social historian’s inquiry into the voiceless minorities in antiquity. Consequently, scholarship pertaining to the ethnography of those who inhabited the frontier has been made intrinsically more important. Nevertheless, outdated modes of inquiry and overly positivistic interpretations have dictated their study and, in some cases, stripped texts of their underlying significance. Tacitus’ Germania is one such text.

Out Of Order: Thinking Through Robin Collyer, Discontent And Affirmation (1973-1985), Kevin A. Rodgers

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation takes up a particular problematic between formal aesthetic content and discontent (political and aesthetic). This is done in two ways: directly through examining the work of Robin Collyer from 1973-1985 and the writings of Philip Monk, and indirectly through my own practice. While Part One is a written thesis, Part Two documents elements of my material practice developed over the course of my PhD studies: it is the research and working material culminating in the exhibition OUT OF ORDER. The period of time that I write about (1973-1985) and the location (Toronto) is one where thinking, action ...

Interpreting the Civil War: Connecting the Civil War to the American Public
